Introduction on literary curatorship

A masterclass for (aspiring) literary curators and event planners
© Gaby Jongenelen Fotografie for CELA

In this masterclass on literary curatorship Tundé Adefioye will tackle these topics: How to develop a practice as a freelance curator? How to work around a theme?  And how to integrate different art forms and theatric conventions?  


In the context of the international talent development program CELA, deBuren and Passa Porta are organizing a unique specialisation course on literary curatorship. In a series of 5 online Zoom masterclasses we are welcoming renowned speakers from the Belgian and Dutch literary field. After a presentation and in some cases an exercise, there will be time for questions and discussion.

Price per workshop: €5 if you work for a literary organization | €0 for CELA-participants and freelance curators


We want to keep this program accessible for everyone. If your organization does not offer a compensation for your participation, please contact us via before 11/05/2021, and we will seek to reserve a ticket for you.

CELA (Connecting Emerging Literary Artists) offers a European context to a new generation of literary creators. The only one of its kind in Europe, it brings together 18 emerging authors, 22 emerging translators and 5 emerging literary professionals to show the potential of literature to connect people, to offer a bigger opportunity to small languages and to drive change. Together the participants tackle some of the challenging realities of our age – from increasingly sharp divisions within Europe to a changing book publishing industry – and place them in perspective, share their work, and bridge the gaps between each other, the publishing industry and the European public.
